Hands are easy to overlook when it comes to skincare. Hand cream can be inconvenient to apply, especially when you’re always on the go. Who wants slippery hands when you’ve got a million things to do? Luckily, we offer some great organic hand creams that hydrate without rendering your hands useless.
Aesop Resurrection Aromatique Hand Balm: Rough, dry hands become smooth and soft after a light application of this nourishing balm from Aesop.
Sweet almond, coconut, and macadamia oils provide hands with more than enough of vitamins A, C, and E without overdoing the slip factor. Touches of shea and cocoa butter hydrate your hands and keep them supple without creating a thick film.
Weleda Citrus Hand and Nail Cream: Weleda, a superstar organic brand, brings you a fast-absorbing hand cream with a light citrus scent. This delicious cream treats not only rough skin on the hands but also the cuticles and nail beds.
Lighter ingredients such as sweet almond oil, carnauba wax, and beeswax provide nourishment. Lemon oil helps brighten the skin on the hands and encourages nail growth.
Antipodes Deliverance Kowhai Flower Hand Cream: This vitamin-E-enriched formula provides nourishment and hydration without inhibiting your ability to use your hands. Antipodes' silky, lightweight hand cream is a slam dunk for anyone who wants an easy-to-carry tube.
Avocado oil, macadamia oil, calendula and glycerine keep hands free of rough, dry patches without overdoing the moisture. Sweet orange, tonka bean, and sandalwood provide a relaxing scent.
In Extreme Cases, Try a Prep Step
Everybody wants the perfect, non-greasy hand cream. However, certain jobs, household chores, sports, and hobbies cause skin on the hands to thicken, preventing the lightest hand creams from penetrating.
If you’ve tried everything and still feel like your hand creams don’t sink in, try a scrub before applying your creams. This additional treatment step helps loosen and remove excess dry skin so hand creams can penetrate better, leaving that greasy feel in the past where it belongs.
L’Occitane One Minute Hand Scrub with Shea Butter is a great option for extreme cases. Fortified with moisturising organic shea oil, this sugar-based exfoliant whisks away rough, dead skin. Your hands are left with a beautifully smooth surface that any hand cream will sink straight into.
